^ is a screenshot of some specs

Does the PCIEX part that I boxed in red mean I have the PCI-express slot for the 7750?

Also, my power supply is 350W.

I'm looking to upgrade my video card and am eyeing the sapphire 7750 but I'm super paranoid that I'll buy it just to realize that its not compatible with my computer since I'm not too great with this hardware stuff!

Help please, anybody? If there's more stuff I have to check to make sure the compatibility please let little ol amateur me know!


Thanks in advance :)

Hi,

Yes, you can run a 7750 with that motherboard and PSU, these cards really use very little power.

If you check ASUS website they show you the PCI-E X16 slot (blue) to install it into. The bandwidth will be a little less due to PCIe 1.0 but probly not a problem with the 7750.

Do you have a full size case or a "slim" model?

you can find both slim or regular sized HD7750's depending on your case.

Okay so I just opened up my computer to take a look: (excuse all the dust inside!)

^ I'm guessing its the blue slot above the 2 white ones? What is the card attached to that one white slot? :S Is that my current card? Sorry if my questions are super nooby, lol.

I think I also heard something about how the pins or ports or something like that (Sorry I'm not too sure, lol) have to be compatible, that's not an issue is it?

And yeah, pretty sure my computer is a full size case, it's not particularly slim or anything

yes the blue slot is the x16 and will support your graphic card .the motherboard seems old so i think it will have pci x16 (1.0). as far as hd7750 its a low power consumption card runs directly on pci x16 slot power n has wattage of around 55 TDP
